Heart Brownies à la Mode
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8+
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate (I use Baker’s chocolate)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
Quick Raspberry Coulis
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tsp sugar, to taste
  • Vanilla ice cream or the flavor of your choice
  1. Microwave the chocolate and the butter for 2 minutes until the butter melts.
  2. Stir the mixture until the chocolate melts.
  3. Stir in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into a greased 9 x 13 pan or greased heart-shaped pans.
  5. Bake the brownies for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not over bake them. Test them at around 20 minutes but they may need to bake for up to 30 minutes. These brownies are best when still gooey.
Quick Raspberry Coulis
  1. Heat the frozen raspberries in a pan over low-medium heat, adding sugar to taste.
  2. Cook the berries until the sugar dissolves and the berries cook down.
  3. Blend the berry mixture and then pass it through a sieve, discarding the seeds.
Heart Brownies à la Mode
  1. Cut the brownies out with heart cookie cutters.
  2. Slice the heart brownies in half with a serrated knife.
  3. Scoop ice cream onto the bottom half of the brownie and then place the top half of the heart on the ice cream.
  4. Drizzle the brownie and ice cream with raspberry coulis.
  5. TIP: If you make the brownies in advance, heat them in the microwave just before serving them à la mode so that they are warm and gooey.
